We have rented houses in Connecticut, Las Vegas and Florida including in the Orlando area 3 times, and our three week stay at this property was the most enjoyable of all, largely due to the owners who sincerely care about your stay and everything being right. We've had good experiences with most owners we have rented from, but James and Juli Haupt are exceptional.
Our son was back from New Zealand for a veterinary conference in Orlando so we rented this property for a small family reunion. This house was perfect for our needs having 5 bedrooms, each with their own bath. The pool and spa were also perfect for relaxing after long days in the parks. The temperature got down into the 40s a couple nights but we were always able to enjoy the spa whenever we wanted. This pool and spa also provides a bit more privacy than most of the houses in the community. Most have pools facing each other in close proximity, but this house has a wall across the back yard providing some privacy from the houses behind, and being situated on a curve provides more separation from the houses and pools on each side.
The house is the nicest appointed house we have rented with an awesome game room, flat screen TVs in every bedroom plus a large screen TV in the living room, and even two Xbox consoles with Kinect. The LR TV also has Chromecast, my first time using one and it was a huge hit with everyone. Nice touches included a book full of Disney DVDs, hair dryers in every bathroom and an incredibly fun new pinball machine! The kitchen is very well equipped, including both a drip coffee maker and a Keurig. Everybody raved about the comfortable beds!
The house is in a very nice gated community with a clubhouse and large pool, which are within easy walking distance of the house. It is also a great place for morning walks. The Disney and Universal parks are all just minutes away, making even half day visits very easy. Many very good chain restaurants are also just minutes away. In three weeks of mostly eating dinners out we never felt restricted in choices.
We all agreed that the next time we visit Orlando this property will be the first one on our list. Great location, great amenities and great owners, giving us peace of mind that we will have a great time!
